Rainey in, Sturgis out for Gators

As expected, Chris Rainey has been reinstated and will play for Florida on Saturday, Gators head coach Urban Meyer announced on Thursday evening.

Meyer also said Rainey, who has been suspended for five games after his aggravated stalking charge, will play "50-50" between tailback and receiver.

Tailbacks Jeff Demps and Mike Gilleslee are also "100 percent," Meyer said at his Thursday media availability in Gainesville.

However, in a bit of a surprise, kicker Caleb Sturgis has been ruled out. Sturgis aggravated his back injury in practice on Wednesday.

That's potentially a big loss for the Gators, who have been using punter Chas Henry to kick. Henry, you may remember, missed a couple field goals in Florida's 10-7 home loss to Mississippi State.

Rainey is back? SHOCKING

Meyer is a class act. Letting this guy get a 2nd chance. Rainey is lucky the Gators are in bad shape, or else Meyer would've made an example out of that stalker.

Jeff Demps is not 100%. No one that injured this late in a season is 100%. We need to hit him art and keep him down.

That's very telling. Even their own beat writer thought he should have been gone for the year. What's next at Florida?
BREAKING NEWS: Florida star QB arrested on two counts on possession with intent to sell for having 15 lbs of illegal drugs on his person. Urban Meyer refused to release a statement but did say that he thought that the player would be available in two week to play against Georgia.

What a joke.
